    They match known originals in terms of quality, construction, materials used, finish, die characteristics, etc.

    I realise you are most likely new to collecting Third Reich items. It is a facinating hobby, but it is one that does require some real study. There are no easy answers. I am not saying that to put you off! On the contary, to me, that is what I like about it. My advice is to read the forum as avidly as possible. Also try and handle as much material as possible.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I probably canít afford to really collect too much Third Reich stuff. I do have some stamps and coins and stuff. If I find a good deal Iíll take it. Of course when it comes to medals if I find a good deal I might think itís fake

    Hi Class316

    Collecting Third Reich era memorabilia is indeed an expensive and somtimes frustrating hobby. We all collect with ups and downs. I remember times when I bought something new each week and I remember times (like now) that I haven't bought anything at all in months. Over the years I changed my collecting style. In the old days I yust bought anything Third Reich related, now I collect in a certain direction. This save me money and it's letting me become more specialized in certain collecting fields.
